quote of the day
Sports days have positive effects, not only in improving physical ability but also in allowing students to bond. They nurture a sense of cooperation through physical education classes held prior to the event. Although schools have been asked to take various measures and reduce school hours amid the pandemic, I hope sports days will be kept as a way to enhance the learning experience for students.
